Speaker cable extension?
I'm wondering if someone can help me out.
I have the Ashdown MAG 300 Evo ii combo and I am trying to use its 15" speaker and connect it to my head.
At the rear panel, there is a cable coming from inside the combo which is attatched to the speaker. However, this does not reach up to my Peavey head.
Is it possible to use a coupler like this to put between two speaker cables in order to make an extension of sorts? The seller said it would work but I don't know if he is being genuine or if he would say anything? I read on one of the forums that you shouldn't use one as they are for guitar signals not speaker signals.
There is a picture on this link if I haven't explained clearly.
Yes one of those adaptors would work ok.
You need a proper speaker jack cable that has thicker conductors to handle the much higher current (and probably won't be screened cable), not a guitar cable that is screened and has much thinner conductors. I usually solder them up using 2 core mains cable.
The first one is TRS stereo, no use for you. The second one should work. It's machined, not wired from one end to the other. You could just get a short piece of speaker cable with 1/4" jacks and cut it to length you'd need. Then put a female 1/4" on it to make an extension.
Here's an fleabay neutric version of what I mean.
I would be hesitant to use anything like that when it is intended for guitar cable coupling.
A good little project would be to build a junction box with speaker wire and a couple of jacks.
It would still work fine but the Ring connection is redundant.
Building a junction box, especially if you could attach it to something, would be best. You could then put a Speakon socket on as well and use a "proper" speaker lead, e.g.
That ebay link you listed would be perfect to be honest! Then I could connect it to the speaker cable coming from the amp into my head. However I live in the UK, I will have a look if there are any UK listings similar to this! Thanks!
